WWE Hall Of Famer and Houston native Booker T is hosting a special live version of his “Heated Conversations” podcast later this month as part of a benefit for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Taking place Sept. 24 in Los Angeles, the benefit will feature appearances by WWE Superstars, raffles, and wrestling memorabilia to be auctioned off, including autographed items from Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe.

Booker T, who’s real name is Robert Booker Tio Huffman, announced in December that he plans to run for mayor of Houston in 2019.



Rockets owner Leslie Alexander continues to show generosity toward the city of Houston, increasing his donation for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts from $4 million to $10 million on Tuesday, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

A spokesman confirmed Alexander’s pledge to Feigen, but the team didn’t announce it because the owner didn’t want the focus to be on him.

In a statement Monday, Alexander and the Rockets said, “Our hearts are heavy seeing the devastation that so many of our friends, family, and neighbors are experiencing.”

Alexander isn’t the only member of the Rockets organization who’s raised money for relief efforts – Chris Paul has donated a combined $75,000 for flood victims.
